"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." - Carl Sagan
Okay okay, so I'm definitely not God, but I did make this apple pie with everything I already had except the apples! Of course it was on my 101 list, so I had to do it.
✔ 15. Bake a pie (including the crust) from scratch
I used my Betty Crocker book to guide me through. I used her recipe for a buttermilk crust because she said it was easier to handle (sorry, I couldn't find that recipe on her site, but it's in the book). Well, I've learned now that crusts are easy to make--especially now that I own a pastry blender--but the hardest part is moving the crust from the counter to the pie dish. So frustrating! I had to do it a few times for each crust.
